Jerome Boateng Memes Flood Internet After Bayern Defender Gets Humiliated by Messi (Pics)

Lionel Messi was not his usual superhuman self last year. He only scored 41 goals for FC Barcelona in 2013-14, which is…well, still insanely good for anyone else, but kind of pedestrian for the Argentine superstar.

Messi hasn’t been pedestrian this year though. And he certainly wasn’t pedestrian during the first leg of the Champions League semifinals between Barcelona and Bayern Munich on Wednesday. Just ask Bayern defender Jerome Boateng, who got his ankles shattered on Messi’s 53rd goal of the season—a tally that will go down as one of the most memorable in the history of the game.

Understandably, the internet absolutely lost its shit when it saw that.

Take a look at these Jerome Boateng memes and have a laugh at his expense:

Don’t worry, Jerome. At least you won the World Cup last year.
